Let's hope it's not too serious.

I'm afraid it is KUSports.com reports he's in critical condition and currently in surgery.

Here's the link to that article:

Wow, that is a crazy way to go out. He hit a pot hole on his bicycle and went over the handle bars. He really must of took a tumble. That will make me think twice next time I'm out cycling. KU fan's are in his debt for the service he did for the U.

Ch. 5 reported his body went into a light pole after going over the handle bars.

Wow, that's terrible. RIP Mr. Frederick.
I'm just wondering how he got a severe head injury if he was wearing his helmet. Either that helmet wasn't a good helmet or not properly fitted. And he must have been going pretty fast. Strange.

My wife and kids drove by the accident just after it happened. They were convinced he had been hit by a car, but then I heard about the pothole. My condolences to the Frederick family.

Condolences from a (mainly) KSU fan.
Things like this transcend KU vs MU vs KSU vs whoever IMHO.

RIP Mr Fredrick
